What is Juvederm?
The Juvederm® collection offers dermal fillers that are made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance within the skin that delivers nutrients and helps the skin to retain its softness and moisture while adding volume. As we age, hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally depleted, and our skin loses moisture, volume, and strength. Juvederm® is FDA-approved to replace volume by injecting an HA dermal filler into specific areas of the skin to achieve beautiful results. Each product in the Juvederm® dermal collection of fillers is designed with a modified form of HA. Dr. Philip Miller offers Voluma, Ultra, Ultra Plus, and Volbella by Juvederm® for patients who are seeking specific results.
As we age, our skin loses elasticity, and we experience moderate to severe parentheses lines, folds and wrinkles that appear on the face and around the nose and mouth. Serums and creams may provide some relief but can only work on the skin’s surface. Lines, furrows, creases, thinning lips and smile lines are common aging problems that can be improved with facial plastic surgery or chemical or laser peels, but the recovery time and expense can be greatly reduced when you choose an alternative solution, such as Juvederm®. The results from Juvederm® can provide you with the long-lasting results that you desire. Juvederm® fillers offer a reasonable alternative to surgery by adding volume to a depressed or wrinkled area using injections. Each Juvederm® volume enhancer has unique benefits that treat specific issues.
Which Juvederm® treatment is right for you? Here is a brief introduction to the Juvederm® products offered by Dr. Philip Miller.
